Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Gerber Loses to Unlucky Turn


As poker players ourselves, we feel a touch of commiseration for Stephen Gerber right now. He five-bet all in pre-flop for 948,000 out of the big blind. His opponent, cutoff player Robert Pisano, tanked and tanked. He took so much time for his decision that Gerber finally called for a clock. When the clock was down to twenty seconds, Pisano made the call to put Gerber at risk of elimination.

Gerber: {k-Clubs}{k-Hearts}
Pisano: {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}

The ten-high flop was clean for Gerber, {10-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{9-Clubs}, but a brutal ace spiked on the turn, {a-Hearts}. A shell-shocked Gerber was off to the rail after the river came {j-Clubs}.

By the time Pisano was done stacking that pot he was up to 2.31 million in chips.
